Test Automation

Release Engineering

Priorities page

  • Fennec 5.0 train
    • bug 653717 - aurora branding - landed, with mozconfigs + testing
    • bug 654838 beta branding - tested, with release mozconfigs -- issues with android strings?
    • bug 655107 - 5.0b1 test build - ran a staging user repo 5.0b1; ready for a real-life "test"/"fake" 5.0b1 once repos are created and beta branding is fixed
    • bug 656133 - create mozilla-mobile-5.0 and mobile-5.0 repos -- pending IT
    • Need to create nightly/depend builds off mozilla-mobile-5.0 and mobile-5.0 repos
    • Mobile5.0 tinderbox page
  • Fennec 6.0 train
    • bug 557260 - MobileBuildFactory should inherit MercurialBuildFactory -- in the end game, will need to land this week or next.
      • This will fix clobberer, build-from-revision, make hg operations more robust, and get mobile buildbot infra much closer to desktop buildbot infra.
      • Certain amount of risk when landing, but this is blocking 0.8 release work which we want in time for the 6.0 train.
    • bug 574764 - mobile release builds on buildbot 0.8 -- this task will be a lot easier once bug 557260 lands, especially since other RelEng team members will be able to modify existing desktop release infra to do mobile releases.
